    Requirements problem

    Web server Apache/2.2.15 (CentOS)
    OK PHP 5.3.3
    OK PHP register globals Disabled
    Error PHP extensions Disabled

    Drupal requires you to enable the PHP extensions in the following list (see the system requirements page for more information):

    dom
    gd
    pdo

    Error Database support Disabled

    Your web server does not appear to support PDO (PHP Data Objects). Ask your hosting provider if they support the native PDO extension. See the system requirements page for more information.

    OK PHP memory limit 128M

    Error File system

    The directory sites/default/files is not writable. An automated attempt to create this directory failed, possibly due to a permissions problem. To proceed with the installation, either create the directory and modify its permissions manually or ensure that the installer has the permissions to create it automatically. For more information, see INSTALL.txt or the online handbook.

    Warning Unicode library Standard PHP

    Operations on Unicode strings are emulated on a best-effort basis. Install the PHP mbstring extension for improved Unicode support.

    OK Settings file The ./sites/default/settings.php file exists.

    Error Settings file The settings file is not writable.

    The Drupal installer requires write permissions to ./sites/default/settings.php during the installation process. If you are unsure how to grant file permissions, consult the online handbook.

    Check the error messages and proceed with the installation.

      Try to update your Apache2 web server and install the required PHP modules as explained in the article. Simply follow the steps described above to do away with the errors.
